Ruger Shotguns


Recommended Posts

Has anyone shot any Ruger Shotguns? I saw a stainles/synthetic over-under the other day. Pretty cool.

I've got a Ruger over/under Red Label in 20ga. and like it very much. I've also got 2 Browning Over/unders and the Ruger is every bit as good in mine opion. It also cost less then the Brownings.

I am actually trying to sell mine right now. I had the wood/blued barrel, but did not want to take it out duck hunting because it might get damaged or rusty. So, I sold it and got the stainless/synthetic red label. The barrels have as much shine as blued barrels didn't scare birds though, and that synthetic stock is something that I can’t speak highly enough of.

I've got a Ruger Red Label in 12 ga. and like it so darn much when I won one at a DU event I gave it to my grown son. Now that's pretty much all we use for duck hunting. It's like anything else, you need to clean it and dry it off after the hunt and it will stay like new for years.

I've been shooting a Red Label 12ga for about 12 years now, and wouldn't trade it for anything. Sure it's got some dings and scratches from lots of pheasant hunting, but considering all the abuse it's taken over the years, it still looks great! I've been looking at the Gold label side-bys for a while now....Happy Birthday to me---happy birthday to me??????

I picked up the camo stainless/synthetic a couple of months ago. It seems a little weird having a utility over and under, but I have no doubt that this gun is going to outlast me.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
